Perhaps the biggest disappointment of the year, nothing has been revealed about the second season of Saw. Fans around the world (myself included) were disappointed by this news as MAPPA STAGE seemed like the perfect place to announce the new season.

Actors display rare memorabilia, but not much else of note happens. Ah well, let’s go ahead and hope for an announcement soon!
